MORE than just Environmental Site Assessments for the Solar Power Industry, Alpha provides Unique Preliminary Solar Site Assessments & Feasibility Studies.
Do you have multiple large utility-scale solar projects sites under consideration and need to select the highest potential megawatt yield vs the cost to develop? Or do you have a selected site where environmental, access or connection factors need to be quickly evaluated to assemble a “shovel ready” prospectus for potential investors?
Alpha Environmental will perform a unique service to assess these sites and provide an accurate preliminary site utilization plan. We can evaluate solar feasibility by using aerial drone reconnaissance together with our proprietary imaging and topographic software to quickly:
Delineate potential unusable areas such as wetlands, jurisdictional waterways, or other obstructions.
Assess exposure of the site to the sun over the course of the year, seasonal weather patterns, shading, and specific terrain features such as general orientation and slopes.
Assess proximity to utility electrical lines and substations.
Estimate cost of construction at the site, with regard to forested and heavily vegetated areas, steepness of grade, roughness, and soil conditions.
Alpha Environmental’s unique service will not only provide more detail preliminary Solar Site Assessments & Feasibility Studies, but we will deliver it in weeks rather than the months it now takes to acquire this critical planning information. Additionally, the generated information can later be utilized to complete the standard environmental reports for wetland delineation, threatened and endangered species, hydrology and inundation mapping.
